Gingerbread white chocolate chip biscotti

Let’s hold on to the holiday season a little bit longer and make this delicious biscotti to dunk in our morning coffee. We still have one more December day to savor! And really, it’s too cold to go outside in Colorado right now anyway. (I was freezing when it was 50 in Arizona…I’d keep…

Chicken with bacon and white bean ragout

You guys. My brother is so cool that he just made this recipe up. I’m so uncool, on the other hand, that I had to Google what a “ragout” was after he sent it to me. #reallife For a little culinary education: He later explained that a ragout is technically a stew,…

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

Have you ever thought “I wish I could eat a sugar cookie AND a cinnamon roll at the same time?” Me either. So, these are the answer to the dreams we didn’t even know we had 😉 These cinnamon roll sugar cookies are insane. Seriously, they’re the perfect holiday treat…

Friday Favorites

Where has the time gone?! I swear it was just December 1st… and now, we’re a week away from Christmas. It’s been a busy week full of work, holiday and wedding prep, so we’re looking forward to this weekend! We have date night, Christmas activities, church, packing and lots more to fit in. I…

Intervals + Incline Walking Workout

Happy Thursday! Let’s talk about balance. What does it mean to you? For me, it means staying active and eating a relatively healthy diet… with some cookies and wine mixed in, of course (we have to live a little!). So, along with finding recipes and baking ideas, I love looking at new workout…

Eggnog Pancakes

Creamy eggnog, cinnamon and nutmeg in fluffy pancake form? Yes, please. But first, let’s back up: I had never even tried eggnog before last week. I know! And the strangest part is that I was still somehow dreaming of eggnog pancakes. The idea of plain eggnog weirded me out (What is…

National Cupcake Day

Happy National Cupcake Day! We just can’t let this holiday pass without recognition around here 😉 Cupcakes have always been a favorite; arguably the best mini dessert. We’re even thinking we’ll have a “cake” made out of cupcakes at our wedding, so clearly, I’m serious about this. Just in time for…

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We are in full work-holidays-wedding-planning mode over here (aka overwhelmed!), and I’m so ready for this weekend. I hope you all have a great weekend full of delicious food… like boozy cookie bars. Favorite dinner idea: I made this butternut squash soup from Julie’s blog the other night…

Mexican Chicken Soup

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… I’m one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music way before it’s appropriate. But, I’m glad the rest of the world has now caught up to me! It was insanely cold here last week, so we’ve basically been on a soup and tea meal…

Catching up + Pumpkin Gingerbread

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving…and two weeks after? I wasn’t intending to take this long of a break from blogging, but sometimes, life happens! Like, your laptop dies forever and you get sick (it’s not healthy to live in temperatures below 30… just saying). Oh yeah, and you fly to…
